Outsiders lack real understanding of Amish

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

From time to time, members of the Pittsburgh Camera Club come to Volant.

They like to shoot the scenery and, of course, with a long lens, the Amish in the area.

The last time they were here, someone told me that on that last trip, one of the members asked, “Do the Amish wear their costumes on the weekends?”

Think about it.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
